This comes after Omega stated in an interview with Tokyo Sports that he was “stepping away” from New Japan Pro Wrestling as his contract with the promotion is slated to expire on January 31st. He has three options that have been speculated on by fans. Those options are to sign a new deal with NJPW, jump to the WWE or join AEW.
Hogan spoke with Justin Barros of Sports Illustrated where he talked about what it would mean for Omega to come to WWE.
“It’s tough to go your whole life without eating at McDonald’s or riding in a Chevrolet,” said Hogan. “If you don’t touch on the WWE, the story’s not complete. But maybe Kenny could be the exception.”
“I fell in love with Japan in 1978,” said the 65-year-old Hogan. “Times were different back then, there were no cell phones or internet. There was no cross-promotion of social media platforms, and you couldn’t watch my matches in Tokyo or Fukuoka or Osaka like you can now. I wasn’t married until December of ’83, and I hadn’t started a family yet, so in ’78 I was over there running hard.”
